Yesterday out of nowhere I suddenly felt a shiver go down my spine. I realized that if I didn't pull some advocacy action, my fellow Broadcast Film Critics might just give Chloe Grace Moretz Two nominations for Best Young Actor/Actress for Kick-Ass 2 and Carrie and nobody needs that. Not even Chloe who doesn't strike us as the sort that needs the validation to go on. (Horror of horrors that's already occurred back in 2010 when she won a double nom) And then I pictured Quvenzhané Wallis getting nominated for her one line in 12 Years a Slave and remembered that frustrating nomination for Asa Butterfeld in Hugo (he could repeat this year for Ender's Game) and I knew I had to intervene with some advocacy or at least a helpful voting cheat sheet.
Thomas Horn & Quvenzhane Wallis, the last two winners of this category

There’s a great-looking family adventure headed your way on Hallmark Channel called Space Warriors, and apart from the fact that you can win a trip to Space Camp, I have a chance for you to take home the movie. No ordinary Hallmark film, this one stars Dermot Mulroney, Mira Sorvino, Josh Lucas, Thomas Horn, and Danny Glover, and in a somewhat similar vein to another film involving Space Camp, shows off the ability of kids (especially if they are geniuses, I suppose) to make a difference.
This one looks like a real treat for younger audiences, and I’ve got a BlogApp below to help you explore it, including checking out the trailer, and entering to win a trip to Space Camp. Check it out below, find out all you can about the film (which airs on Hallmark Channel May 31st), and then enter to win a copy of the Blu-Ray! »

The film starts shooting next week in Baton Rouge.

Chicago – In the last days of August 2012, three generically titled ghost pictures had the misfortune of opening at more or less the exact same time. None of them were particularly memorable, yet only one managed to produce any semblance of genuine chills. There are enough eerie moments in “The Possession,” the demonic thriller from gifted Danish director Ole Bornedal, that one wishes that it pushed past the boundaries of its tame PG-13 rating.
The script by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White is a Judaic variation on “The Exorcist,” complete with a hasidic scholar barking out chants just like Max Von Sydow. The success of this formula succeeds or fails largely on the strength of its central performance from the possessed victim, which often takes the form of a young girl. “Exorcist” star Linda Blair set a spectacularly high bar that no imitator has been able to equal, and “The Possession”’s pint-sized leading lady, »

A searing debut from youngster Thomas Horn as a small boy trying to make sense of the death of his father on 9/11 distinguishes this multi-layered drama from British director Stephen Daldry. Horn plays Oskar Schell, a youngster with just a hint of autism, who worships his indulgent father (Tom Hanks). When dad dies during the World Trader Center attack, Oskar sets off on a mission to discover what lock can be opened by a key he finds hidden in a vase in his father's closet. »
